ATAS Adds Variety to Their Solar Air Heating System – InSpire

Allentown, Pa.: May 5, 2015– ATAS International, Inc. 

Earth Day 2015 (April, 22nd) marked the one year anniversary of the exclusive website for InSpire®, the transpired solar collector manufactured by ATAS International, Inc. The color options have now expanded to include Charcoal Grey which has a Solar Reflectance Index (SRI Value) of 27.
How It Works: The InSpire® wall panel is mounted a few inches from the building’s outer wall. The precision perforations in the wall panels allow outside air to travel through the face of the panel. Solar heated air at the surface of the panel is drawn through the perforations where it rises between the two walls and enters the building’s central ventilation system or supply fan. The InSpire® wall panel also helps to reduce the cooling load in the summer by preventing normal solar radiation from striking the building’s main wall. Hot air is thermally siphoned up the wall and vented through holes at the top of the system, leaving the main wall cooler. In the summer, by-pass louvers allow cool fresh air to be drawn into the building at night, maintaining indoor air quality.
Solar efficient InSpire® colors in KYNAR 500® PVDF or HYLAR 5000® PVDF include Black, Classic Bronze, Redwood, Regal Blue, and Charcoal Grey (darker colors work best for heat absorption).
In addition to InSpire®, ATAS offers many sustainable products, many being ENERGY STAR® qualified. Some of these products include solar ready roofs, Above Sheathing Ventilation (ASV) technology, cool metal roofing with cool pigmented paint coating systems.
